    I’m confused. What the heck is the UK’s Civil Partnership Law for. I was obviously under the mistaken impression that establishing a civil partnership made you eligible for the same pension and other financial benefits of marriage. Now we’re hearing that the police force has “developed a new scheme” that will make civil partners eligible for pension benefits. So basically the whole Civil Partnership Law is a sham and gay people still have to get their partnership rights through a patchwork quilt of benefits determined by individual employers the same way they always did? Am I missing something here? Please, someone explain.
